LAS VEGAS, NV. (June 1, 2018) – Today, MountainView Hospital celebrated its inaugural Class of 2018 Internal
During a graduation ceremony at MountainView Hospital, the first class
of 19 Internal medicine residents were honored. Now that the residents
have graduated from training, they can sit for the medical board exams
and upon successful completion; they can practice independently in our
communities. During the festivities, the “graduating” Transitional
Year residents entering the next phase of their residency were also acknowledged.
“This has been a tremendous journey over the past several years –
from an idea of building an accredited graduate medical education program
to graduating our first class of residents,” said Jeremy Bradshaw,
MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “Sunrise Health GME
Internal Medicine Residency Program, based at MountainView, has come a
long way after receiving accreditation in September 2015.”
The first class of 20 Internal Medicine residents were matched and started
their residency at MountainView Hospital in 2016. In the same year, MountainView
Hospital opened the MountainView Medical Associates practice, which focuses
on providing exceptional care in an academic environment.
Following the inaugural class of Internal Medicine residents, the Sunrise
Health GME Consortium has grown and received accreditation for General
Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Transitional Year, Family Medicine,
Emergency Medicine and Anesthesiology.
“Our growing GME enterprise has a significantly contributed to the
growth of graduate medical education in Las Vegas. It allows medical students
more local options for medical residency, with the goal of growing the
base of physicians in southern Nevada to serve our greater community by
improving patient’s access to care,” said Dr. Ferenc Puskas,
Designated Institutional Official.
The Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium currently has
110 residents based at MountainView and Southern Hills, and 80 new talented
residents will be joining the program in July. This year Sunrise Health
Graduate Medical Education received a significant amount of applications
for a limited number of positions, and successfully matched and filled
all resident positions. As of this year, MountainView’s inaugural
